A woman lawyer? Yes, there is such a thing. Being a woman in law is not something new. And while the profession is still male-dominated, many women are successfully working in law today. It is not unusual to find female lawyers with families and children. Self-employment may seem risky but it has its merits for women who want the freedom to organize their time. You just have to be courageous enough to take that leap and prepare yourself for the economic risk.
